Spark People Menu Plans

Thursday, May 02, 2013

Today is my 5th day of following the menu plans provided by SP and I am really pleased at how easy it is. If there is an item of food or an entire meal that I don't have on hand or just don't feel like preparing or eating, I can substitute from a large list of that food or meal group. This is not so terribly different from a few other diets I've tried but it sure feels different, and SP makes it so easy with the technology. Even though I am feeling " in control," I have to admit I fight urges to graze every morning and afternoon. My habit of grazing was bad and I am just now recognizing that I had it. I had convinced myself that because the food I ate was basically healthy, it was acceptable to stretch the meals out or sort of snack (really more like eat small meals) throughout the day...definitely relearning to eat just 3 meals a day with one or two small snacks, if any. Still working on drinking the SP recommended 12 glasses of water a day emoticon and exercise emoticon .

I took my measurements and the scale is out of sight. I will take measurements and weigh again in one month, on the 30th of May.

Happy May Day, everyone! Do kids in school still learn about the May Pole and do May Day baskets? emoticon
